Fitness Exercises For Women

Fitness exercise can be cardiovascular or aerobic workout, strength training, power building workouts, specific functional training, weight- loss training, and muscle-building exercises.

How Do You Choose Women’s Fitness Exercises?

In most cases the body can adapt to only one type of stress at a time. So, if you want to lose weight and you approach it with the focus on aerobic training (i.e., running or cycling) then the body will start losing weight. But most likely, it will not gain muscle size at the same time unless it is in the case of a fitness beginner.

The same thing holds true if you want to practice for endurance training like a marathon. Then your body will adapt by converting a large percentage of your muscles from Type-II (less oxidative capacity) to Type-I (more oxidative capacity).

And vice-versa is true as well. For example, I have had some clients ask me how to get strong at performing certain exercises and at the same time they want to lose weight. Even though it may be doable, but if the primary goal is to get stronger then follow the strength gain parameters. That should come first, and after you accomplish that objective, then you can shift the focus on the weight loss type of fitness training.
